Back to School

The fun is over!!! My boys will start school tomorrow :(

In a way, they are excited to start a new year as a 7th and 3rd graders. I can't believe it, my babies are growing up soooo fast.

Tomorrow they'll meet their new teachers, get their schedules, take supplies to school, and most important thing according to them: see their buddies! :)

We are not the only ones getting ready for this new school year. The teachers has been at school for the last two weeks working and making sure that everything is ready.  I wanted to do something to thank them for their work and to welcome them back.

I used one of Lauren Meader's templates, "Pack a Picnic". I loved her templates and her svg from her Pretty Packinging Collection.

Here is the final product:

I decided to try with different papers.

For the bright colors, I used Echo Park Paper. The green Paper is  from their "Summer Days"  collection and The red from their "For The Record" collection. The ribbon is from Michael's and I colored a Prima white flower with Copic Marker R29 to match the paper.

The second choice was using vintage colors. For the box I used  "Chilled Strawberry Soup" from Jillibean Soup. The lid paper is "Sophisticates" by Stephanie Hunt. The ribbon came from Michael's and I colored the Prima flower with Alcohol ink "Cranberry".

Here is a picture of both designs together

Inside I put body lotion and anti-bacterial hand gel from Bath & Body Works.
